Fuel System

The fuel system in modern cars consists of many parts starting at the tank with a fuel sending unit & fuel pump, most are located in the tank, a fuel filter, some are in the tank, most are somewhere along the fuel supply line before it gets to the engine. The next components after the fuel filter are a fuel pressure regulator, fuel rail(s) and finally the fuel injectors. There is also a throttle body that adds air to the fuel, the amount of fuel added is a precise ratio to air for your car & current situation. This ratio is critical to the proper operation, performance & reliability of your engine and is controlled by the ECU, Engine Control Unit, basically this is the engine’s computer or brain.

Are you experiencing problems with your vehicle like:

  • Reduced fuel economy
  • Rough idling
  • Hesitation when accelerating
  • Engine knocking
  • A sticking throttle pedal
  • Cold-start problems
  • Failed emission testing

If so, your fuel system may be worn out or dirty. Your vehicle’s fuel system must be maintained to perform efficiently and keep emissions low. In many cases, your fuel system clogs as it wears out. Fuel filter clogs often occur because they trap dirt, water, and other contaminants which cause stress to the fuel pump. That is why we suggest you replace your worn out filters every 15,000 to 30,000 miles. Bring in your vehicle and we’ll remove your old fuel filter and replace it with a new one. As for dirty fuel systems, our professionals will clean them.

Why do you need fuel injector cleaning?

Cleaning your fuel injector system helps remove fuel build-up and deposits, clears the intake valves and cylinder heads, and flushes out the entire fuel system.

Cleaning the fuel system periodically can ensure your car performs efficiently, extend the life of your car’s engine, improve engine performance, and increase fuel economy. Without proper cleaning, your fuel injector can also become clogged, which causes poor acceleration, lower power and can eventually lead serious problems with your engine.

Fuel system cleaning can also reduce your vehicle’s carbon footprint by improving the fuel economy.
